Ucross Foundation Art Gallery
Located in the historic Big Red Barn, the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery is an integral public component of the Foundation’s creative environment. The gallery program seeks to engage the interests and values of the local community and visitors from across the country, plays an important role in establishing community relationships, and provides a constantly renewing stream of educational opportunities in an underserved region.
The gallery presents four exhibitions each year, typically featuring outstanding contemporary artists of the region, including Ucross Fellows, as well as historical exhibitions that reflect and explore our location’s rich heritage. Professionally produced brochures connect the gallery with the community, alumni and donors. Nearly 3,000 people visit the gallery annually (including over 1,000 people during the Foundation’s Independence Day celebration). The Gallery is announced on signs on the nearby Interstates, and is listed in seasonal Wyoming tourist guides as well as books such as Fodor’s Travel Guides.
The Art Gallery is open to the public at no charge. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Special group arrangements are available by advance request. The current exhibition closed on December 21, 2012. The gallery will reopen February 23, 2013, with a reception and new exhibition, Sara Mast: Soundings.
The 2007-2008 gallery exhibition schedule was supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes a great nation deserves great art.
